Default Re: Han Bennink

Neat video. I've got a few recordings with Han Bennink, but never actually saw any footage. Always neat to see what these guys are doing to create some of these sounds. Actually, this still seems pretty conventional from an improvised music point of view. I was actually surprised to see him behind an actual kit. It seemed like this video seemed to show him playing lots of notes, and staying really busy. Not a lot of the space that I've heard him use in other things. Using space in this music is one of the hardest things to do I think, particularly from a percussionists standpoint. Very exposed, very naked feeling (to me). Great footage Erik.
